Custom Lane


Conceived by GRAS, Custom Lane is a collaborative platform created to identify, support and celebrate emerging world-class design in Scotland.

At the heart of the organisation is collaboration. Custom Lane is an evolving, collaborative experiment in creating the most engaging, enriching and enjoyable work environment for designers and design-led makers in Scotland. It has been incredibly exciting to watch a community grow around the seed of an idea and for residents take ownership of the concept and space, creating a thriving, productive culture.

Comprised of a café, shop, gallery, event space and workshop the ground floor is fully accessible to the public and offers the ‘best coffee in Leith’. Upstairs is home to the work space where newly renovated space is dedicated to design and creative development.
